House Bill 1219 is an unnecessary and harmful attack on the rights of working Missourians. Senate Bill 572, the vetoed Workers Compensation bill, is an unfair and irresponsible piece of legislation that would have restricted compensation for workers suffering occupational diseases to a minimal amount– just enough to cover the hospital bills and funeral. We hope this veto will force both parties back to the bargaining table to effectively reinforce workers’ compensation in a way that doesn't punish workers injured on the job.
